Centre for Stories is pleased to share that our third round of applications to our Hot Desk Fellowship is now open until 22 December 2021.
"I truly don’t know what it was about the space that allowed me to rev into gear, but maybe it was the fact that one day a week I felt like it was my job to be a storyteller. It felt like my place in the community was to tell stories. It felt like I had a home."
"I would consider myself a wordsmith: I like observing and taking notes, I have books on English phrases, words and their meaning sitting on my desk, my luggage, and my drawer. Sometimes I will go back and read over them and find how this word and that word pieced together to make something beautiful."
"I think this place [Centre for Stories] is really needed. In other spaces I always have a guard up. But here I never feel like that. I really found what I wanted to talk about, and I am able to talk about my experiences and feel heard."
We're seeking applications from CALD and/or Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander backgrounds to complete a 8-12 week hot desk at Centre for Stories in Northbridge.
Join us in celebrating the recipients of the mentoring program and hot desk fellowship.

"The trip to Melbourne for the Digital Writers’ Festival was rewarding in so many ways. Being able to witness local artists and their arts scene both encouraged me to keep honing my creative practice while also giving me the confidence that my work had a place in the broader community."
